At FBCL, we love Jesus. We love to do everything we can to make much of Jesus in Word, Worship, Prayer, and Serving. We urge one another to engage in weekly worship services, connect through DNA Groups, and find places in which to serve one another in the church, community, and home.
To see the kingdom of the world become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, where he shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)
We exist to joyfully advance the kingdom of God by making much of Jesus in the Church, Community, and Home.
Our desire is for your heart to encounter Christ through
- the preaching of God’s inerrant and all-sufficient word,
- songs that teach us to acknowledge God’s sovereign goodness, confess our brokenness, rejoice in our redemption, and eagerly await our Lord’s return,
- prayer that is bible saturated, Christ-exalting, and missions-minded
- serving one another in unity and love by encouraging, equipping, and admonishing in the faith so that your heart will be set on fire with a radical love for Jesus that shines in the church, community, and home.
